Five Day Tarot Forecast : 5/11-5/15

weekendtarotforecast5117 of Rods | King of Pentacles | The Hierophant | 8 of Rods |2 of Rods

At the beginning of the week, you might feel like you need to defend what is yours (I hear some defensive thinking: Stay off my turf! and That was my idea!), yet, no one can get remotely close to claiming what you have built and no one can take credit for your original work. Remember that an idea cannot be copy written, that’s why you can see 100 different people take an idea and put their own spin on it. You will find the people who want what you have to offer.  You will always own the rights to your own work (your portfolio, your examples, your voice). When it comes to defending what you’ve built, try adopting a softer and more inclusive philosophy, you might consider thinking: We should defend what we’ve built or We should protect each others work. You are not the only one who does the work that you do, if you reach out to your peers, if you support them, you will find they will support you too. Each person has their own individual take or version of the same theme. If you are competing for a new job, please know that you have what it takes to get the position. You are seen as professional with experience under your belt. You can do this work and do it well.

The King of Pentacles assures you will receive a good chunk of change for the work you do. Make sure your work really shines and reflects who you truly are (make it exclusively your own), but acknowledge the folks who have blazed a trail for you to follow; acknowledge the people who are in the same position you are. You will always attract more flies with honey, as the saying goes. When you follow the example of people who have come before you, and acknowledge the work of others, you will start to notice  your values are in line with a particular group and this group has a really specific hierarchy with rules to follow. Knowing what your place is within this framework will be important for you, especially once you are ready to take the next step with your work.

You might have a short term project that is coming your way. Say yes to whatever is being offered. It will come in quickly and the competition for this work might be stiff, but you have what it takes. Look at the people around you and recognize you are in a position to take it to the next level. Your choices have led you to the exact place you should be. Energetically, you can ride this wave of prosperity with your peers. There is a natural momentum that will take you into the future, learn to co-create, and build something powerful together. Learn how to be part of a team.

You have some solid ideas that have momentum, run with them and see where they take you. I see more than a hint of prosperity in your future and I see you climbing the ladder of success. The world is your oyster. Find the pearl!

Weekend Tarot Forecast 5/1-5/3

6 of Cups | The Hermit | Ace of Wands

What did you used to love doing? How can you reflect on your experiences from the past and grow from them? What new path is waiting for your attention and enthusiasm?

The 6 of Cups really speaks to me of the ways in which you used to learn – through experimentation, play, and taking emotional risks. Whether that was learning from the friendships you developed, or learning from your family of origin, or learning from the generosity of others (like the time your neighbor gave you a keyboard because they noticed yours needed some repair, or a friend gave you a mixed tape because they wanted to share some new music with you, or a parent gave you dance lessons, so you could learn more about dance). The 6 of Cups is a card of receptivity, emotional growth and gifts.

Maybe you are remembering you have some unfulfilled creative dreams, or someone from your past is reminding you about how you met. Maybe you are getting together with family members you haven’t seen for some time and they are reminding you of who you used to be.

When you shine a light into the past, what do you see? Did you learn from your environment? Or do some past mistakes or roads not taken continue to haunt you? The Hermit card tells me you have spent plenty of time thinking about the choices you were given. If you made mistakes, you have come to terms with how you dealt with any problem that came your way. If you have been fantasizing about “the way things used to be” remember that your memory might be playing some tricks on you. The presence of The Hermit tells me that only through honest reflection are you able to truly hear, and to see how your life choices created who you are at this moment in time. At some point, you needed to guide yourself away from a painful past, a painful memory and order to become the person you are right now.  You no longer have rose colored glasses on. You can look at your past with maturity and honesty, knowing that everyone did there best, and there was a mixture of experiences, some good and some bad. But you learned.

You are now being offered an opportunity. A fresh start. You might feel a sense of renewal. A surge of creative potential. By starting something entirely new, you have the ability to free yourself from whatever cords or attachments want to keep you the same.

Sometimes friends and family do not want to see that we’ve grown or changed. Sometimes people in our environment have preconceived ideas of who we are. You now have the ability to  free yourself from whatever is haunting you.

A bright new future awaits. You have the potential to do great things. Build on what you already know, do not live your life as you did before, create something entirely new from what you have spent your lifetime learning.
